    I believe it, you can see their little muscles working to keep them balanced.

    Yeah. Nope! My brother in law does though. (It was for him too.) We're going to fix the floorboards of his VW bug.
    Yes!

    I cannot get video to play...I try everything and cannot get them to play...I might go later on my laptop and try.thanks for thinking of me though Benny.

    I love welding...I have all my welders home and my plasma cutter too.
    Just no garage to use them. I might build a welding shed here in the spring...have fun with them Dan.

    I thought I had quoted Walnut too about the pullet eggs/double yolkers....I'm on my phone and pics are hard enough to load, not going to try to figure out how to add her quote...
    I have 2 hens and 1 pullet laying. The last week I've gotten 3 monster size eggs (for a silkie). I didn't even think about double yolkers. I set 2 and gave one away with some other hatching eggs. I didn't candle them first. One is developing. It's a very transparent shell, so cool to candle, looks normal. The other one must have started but now just has a red circle around the yolk. Can you tell double yolkers just by candling before set?

    The dark circle on the egg is just my "O" for turning purposes. But those big eggs were almost twice as big as what I've been normally getting. Even for the hens. I wonder if it because I switched to layer feed?
    Awesome!! Good luck. I lockdown on the 28th. :fl for both of us!

    I have set pullet eggs before with good success. At least 5 are laying, and the ones that have been laying a few weeks are about 3/4 size and well rounded. The newer layers are smaller and more pointed, but I would be comfortable setting the more normal sized ones if I had enough

    My Legbar resumed laying a few days ago, and they are fertile. Wonder what a 1/2 CL and 1/2 Russian Orloff would look like??[​IMG]
